Although an estimate of the odds ratio adjusted for other covariates can be obtained by logistic regression, until now there has been no simple way to estimate other interesting parameters such as the risk ratio and risk difference multivariately for prospective binomial data. These parameters can be estimated in the generalized linear model framework by choosing different link functions or transformations of binomial or binary data. Macros for use with the program GLIM provide a simple method to compute parameters other than the odds ratio while adjusting for confounding factors. A data set presented previously is used as an example.
